LISTEN AGAIN – IGUANA RADIO # 121 – the night before the semi

We turn our back for five minutes and not only have Wales captured the heart of the footballing world but the country has voted to come out of the EU, the prime minister has resigned, Nigel Farage has resigned, the Labour are in the middle of a civil war and if that was not enough, the Chilcot report is out tomorrow.

Peppermint Iguana Radio Rides again – live and dangerous 05/07/16

DSCF0212Yes folks, we are back on air on Tuesday 5th July.

It’s been four weeks since our last live show and a lot has happened. The UK has voted to leave the EU, England lost to a part time team managed by a dentist and the Welsh football team have excelled all our expectations. Our trip to France to cheer the boys on has been an experience never to be forgotten – but not necessarily for the right reasons. Oh – and the festival scene is cooking nicely as well.

So expect a European flavour to our show this week, mixing in our usual off the wall blend of new music, hidden gems and cult heroes of the festival scene.

To join us for our return go to www.dapperfm.co.uk from 8pm till just after 10pm.

As usual, big hugs to our sponsors, Rhondda Cynon Taff UNISON, the union for public sector groovers

LISTEN AGAIN – Peppermint Iguana Radio tribute to Steve Will

Steve and his wife Lesley
Steve and his wife Lesley

On 24th May, Peppermint Iguana Radio paid tribute to our mate Steve Will, who sadly passed away earlier this month. Below you will find a cloud cast of the show to listen again.

At times like this it is always difficult to know what to say or do. People will always struggle to come to terms with someone passing too early. Everyone will have their own way of dealing with things.

Here at Peppermint Iguana we do a radio show. So we did a show for Steve. That’s what we do. It won’t rewind the hands of time and it won’t bring Steve back. But it has helped us down the road of coming to terms with things and hopefully will play a part in the healing for others.

Steve was as passionate about music as we are. The show features some of the songs he introduced us to and some of the songs we shared with him. It also shares a handful of memories that will live with us forever.

We hope that the show will bring comfort to those that knew him and provide an insight into who Steve was to those that did not know him. We think it stands up in its own right alongside all of our other shows – entertaining and hopefully informative. Judge for yourselves.

Peppermint Iguana Radio 118 – A tribute to Steve Will – 24/05/16

steve
Steve – at home on the dancefloor in the middle of the night, or just out walking the dog

On 24th May, Peppermint Iguana pays tribute to Steve Williams, who sadly went on to the great dancefloor in the sky recently. Steve touched many of us in many ways. He was an uncle, a friend, a mentor and – in some ways – a role model.

Well known on the Northern Soul All-nighter scene, on the terraces of Cardiff City and loved by all who knew him, Steve was an avid music lover that taught us all a few things in his time. Never sticking to what he knew, Steve was always one for checking out new sounds.

This show will pay tribute to Steve by playing some of the music he loved and some of the music we love that reminds us of him. Expect Northern Soul and Ska. But also expect punk and a few other little surprises.

We will also feature a few new hot releases – cos that is what Steve would have wanted – for us to keep on keeping on.

To listen live go to www.dapperfm.co.uk from 8pm till just after 10pm on Tuesday 24th May.

But we managed to salvage something from it and we now have two hours in conversation with Paul Corkrey and Neil Dymock of the Football Supporters Federation Cymru recorded and on line for you to listen at your own inconvenience.

Yep, apologies to those of you that tried to listen live but Corky managed to pull out a vital cable and we could not work out where it came from. But no matter, below you will find a downloadable link to our chat about the forth coming Euro 2016 Tournament.

Expect vital information about stadiums, discussions about wales prospects of winning the final and tales of leper colonies.

THE FESTIVAL HAS LANDED

Landed after dark
Landed after dark

The daffodils may be still in bloom and the roads may still getting gritted at night, but the festival season is already underway and a few hardy souls have already had their sleeping bags out of mothballs. But Beltane is almost upon us and with it the 2016 festival season will be kicking off properly.

Over the weekend of 29th April to 1st May the hills will be alive to the sound of Landed Festival. Snuggled away in the heart of Mid Wales (Between Llandrindod Wells and Rhayader) Landed is one of Wales best kept secrets, mixing live music, DJs, theatre, crafts, healing and stalls, all surrounded by some of the most picturesque scenery in the UK.

For the next Peppermint Iguana radio show, on 26th April, we scoop up a sample of the bands playing Landed to whet your appetite. As yet we have not finalised the play list but we have plenty to choose from. Will it be the Goa Trance of Zub Zub, the Anarcho Folk Punk of Kilnaboy or the Ska of the Chalk Outlines? All will be revealed on the night.

We will also have some hot new tunes from the likes of Dub War and Department S and we mark the 40th Anniversary of the Ramones seminal first album.

For all this much more, log on to www.dapperfm.co.uk from 8pm on 26th April.

PAIN and Howard Marks - Let me Grow More Weed
PAIN and Howard Marks – Let me Grow More Weed

Mother festival is wiping the sleep out of her eyes, having a bit of a stretch and putting the kettle on for a cup of chai. To provide a sound track to her wake up, on 12th April 2016 Peppermint Iguana Radio will be featuring some of the bands playing the Something Else Solar Warm Up Party and All Tomorrow’s Parties.

So you can expect Muddy Summers, Doozer McDooze and the Firepit Collective to show up on the play list.

Not only is Mother Festival walking up, but the Peppermint Iguana Beehive is also coming to life, so expect lots of bee related tunes from the likes of –erm – TheBees, The Techniques and two different bands called the Supremes.

Sadly, as we were putting the finishing touches to the play list, we heard the news that on 10th April 2016 Mr Nice, AKA, Howard Marks shuffled off his mortal coil, 21 years to the day after being released from prison. Howard was about as rock and roll as it is possible to be, without actually being a rock and roller. He did dabble with the odd collaboration though, and we will be featuring a few of those throughout the show.

To hear all of this, and more, live go to www.dapperfm.co.uk from 8pm on Tuesday 12th April.

CHEAP SWEATY SIMON ROCKAWAY – Iguana Radio Special – listen again

Nice work if you can get it – Simon Philips on duty at his record fair

Want to know the truth about that legendary Kurt Cobain proposal to Courtney Love in TJs? Want to know some of the secrets of John Peel’s record collection? Want to hear about Green Day being lower on the bill than the lucky dip? Well this is made for you.

On 23rd February we had the pleasure of being joined in the studio by Mr Cheap Sweaty Simon Rockaway Phillips. Pusher of records to vinyl junkies, gig promoter and all round eminence grease.

Simon started out with Rockaway Records, a small record stall in Newport Provisions Market, and ended up organising record fairs the length and breadth of the UK. Along the way he casually put Newport on the map and played a major role in making Newport’s TJs Legendary throughout the world.

With no ambitions other than to get some of his favourite bands to play his home town, with a cheap ticket price, he played host to names that went on to take the world by storm, from local boys Dub War and Sixty Foot Dolls, to the likes of Therapy? Bad Brains, Green Day, the Butthole Surfers, The Misfits and The Melvins.

Listen again to the show and hear tales of incidents with Kurt Cobain, John Peel and several tons of shredded paper

IGUANA RADIO SPECIAL – Simon Philips – Cheap Sweaty Special Guest

On 23rd February 2016 Peppermint Iguana once again sneak in an extra radio show with a special guest dropping in to shoot the breeze and talk about life, the universe and seven inch vinyl.

Our ‘Star on the reasonably priced radio show’ will be none other than Simon Philips, record dealer, gig promoter and all round eminence grease.

Simon started out with Rockaway Records, a small record stall in Newport Provisions Market, and ended up organising record fairs the length and breadth of the UK. Along the way he casually put Newport on the map and played a major role in making Newport’s TJs Legendary throughout the world.

With no ambitions other than to get some of his favourite bands to play his home town, with a cheap ticket price, he played host to names that went on to take the world by storm, from local boys Dub War and Sixty Foot Dolls, to the likes of Therapy? Bad Brains, Green Day, the Misfits and The Melvins.

Expect two and a bit hours of three old mates chatting about Newport, obscure punk rock and obsessive record collecting – oh, and playing some notable tunes from back in the day.

If you want to interact during the show via facebook, go to our event page or twitter @clintiguana

To tune in, go to www.dapperfm.co.uk from 8pm on Tuesday 23rd February 2016.

We even kicked off with a brand new jingle recorded for us by Fraggle of Back To The Planet in his barn with his ferret.

Iguana Radio Show tribute to Bowie (and other rock and roll oddities) listen again

Bowie-spaceoddity

On 19th January we paid tribute to David Bowie. None of us here at Iguana HQ were massive fans of ‘The Thin White Duke’, but it is fair to say he was one of the most influential musicians of the last 50 years – so hats off.

He was often described as a chameleon, which is missing the point slightly. Chameleons change their colours to blend in. Bowie changed his couloirs to stand out – and others changed their colours to copy him.

For us at Iguana, he had not recorded anything that really flicked our switch for over forty years, but some of his early work was absolutely spot on. Changes, Suffragette City, Gene Gene, Space Oddity, Rebel Rebel – all timeless classics. For other generations there will be other periods of his work that did it for them. The point being, everyone out there will like at least one Bowie tune, if not more. Not many artists can claim that.

Then of course there were the collaborations with the likes of Iggy Pop, Mott the Hoople and the movies he made.

In this show we pay tribute to his Bowieness by including tracks written by him, inspired by him and even performed by him. As you can expect from an iguana show, our selection wanders away from the expected hits

And it goes without saying, we also spun a selection of new choonage and songs relating to other things going on in the world.

PEPPERMINT IGUANA RADIO # 105 – COMIN’ AT YA TUESDAY 24TH NOVEMBER

DSC_0267Well, there is no avoiding it, we are hurtling towards the end of the year. So Clint will be concentrating his mind for the next few shows on the best of the music released in 2015. Too early to be looking at a best of the year? Well, maybe, but hey, there have been some fantastic new releases this year.

So over the next few shows expect the likes of AOS3, Moonloonies, One Eyed God, Cosmo, The Membranes, Clutch, Public Service Broadcasting, Sendelica, Nuke on Route, Scum of Toytown, Pretty Vicious and many more to make it onto Clint’s play lists.

No doubt John will also be reflecting on the last year and the new-old releases he has got his mitts on at various record fairs, boot sales and independent record stores.

To hear the next show, log on to www.dapperfm.co.uk from 8pm on Tuesday 24th November. You can also interact with us via facebook by going to the show’s event page.

DSC_0960

Next PEPPERMINT IGUANA RADIO SHOW – Tuesday 10th November from 8pm

Well, it might be our 104th show, but The Artist Formerly Known as Ginger John has been absent without leave a few times since we first hit the air. There was the time he had the gastric band fitted, the time he wanted to catch up with the live East Enders, the time he was washing his hair and the time he was doing the thing we promised to never talk about in public. So – anyway – he is going to be celebrating his 100th radio show this week, bless him. His play list will include some of his favourite tunes that he has played when he can be bothered to turn up, including Alton Elis, The Clash, Chiefs of Relief, The Impressions and the Slaves.

Clint, meanwhile, has spent the last week protesting at the abuse of lions and tigers near Bargoed (no, they are not normally fund in Bargoed, it was a travelling circus). So he will have a number of lion/tiger/circus themed tracks to fit alongside his usual mix of new releases and previews of forthcoming gigs. Expect The Members, AOS3, Dugmus, Cabinet of Millionaires and Radical Dance Faction to make it through to his final list.

Tune in via www.dapperfm.co.uk from 8pm o’clock on Tuesday 10th November.

As usual, big up to our sponsors, Rhondda Cynon Taff UNISON, the union for public sector groovers.
